Have you ever thought about what your favorite place in your home is? Well, for many of us it certainly would be the living room. Not only because we frequently share time with family and friends but its where we can enjoy our lovely TV show marathons, movie nights, or keeping up with our favorite sports team.
So how do we make this area even more enjoyable? A suitable TV unit will be a welcome addition to your living room, as it would surely improve the overall look, feel, and comfort of the area. It also protects your TV and provides storage for your multimedia accessories.
But with so many options available, it can be tricky to find a TV stand that blends seamlessly with your other living room furniture and offers all the functional features you need. So, we have prepared a few tips for finding the right TV Unit that will guarantee unforgettable moments in front of the screen!
First Things First: It’s time to get out the measuring Tape.
After considering the layout of your room, decide where you want your new TV unit to go and carefully measure the space available. These measurements indicate the maximum possible dimensions of your TV unit.
Next, you’ll need to measure your TV. Note down somewhere your TV’s height, width, and depth. When choosing a TV unit, look for something which as the width of your TV + 10 cm at minimum. Otherwise, it'll just look strange.
Match the TV Unit Style with Your Home Interior.
Looks do play an important role when it comes to selecting the perfect TV Unit. Have a look at your home interior, the style that it has, the colors, the dominant materials used, and try to synchronize these with the choice of the TV unit.
For example, our V Unit is a perfect fit for homes designed into contemporary style, complemented by its Walnut Veneer finish on the cabinet’s front panels, the marble base adding a touch of elegance, and its overall time-honored unconventional appearance. All our designs uphold characteristics emphasizing simplicity, clean edges, smooth surfaces, and aesthetics that say “less is more”.
Think about the Extra Storage that the TV Unit will provide.
Stepping away from the visual perspective and entering a more pragmatic point of view, don’t forget to consider all the additional equipment that your TV stand may need to accommodate.
For instance, you may spend a lot of time playing on the PlayStation or you may have an A/V receiver, a ton of cables, or other boxes that require storage somewhere within the vicinity of the TV.
If storage space is important for you, you may want to check out our SA.ND TV Unit as it provides plenty of extra space for any additional equipment.
Choose the Right Material & Consider the Structural Support of your Dream TV Unit.
Similarly to the size factor of your TV Unit, make sure you have information on how powerful and stable the structural support of the TV stand is to avoid damage to the flat-screen TV if the stand is not able to fully support it. This may be a result of weight, inappropriate material, or purely a matter of poor structure.
When it comes to the right material for your TV unit, there are a few important factors: stability, durability, and aesthetics. You will find that most TV units these days are made of medium-density fiberboard or similar wood composite materials. Fewer are made of wood as has been traditionally commonplace.
As you can imagine, wood, marble, and metal are some of the toughest and long-lasting materials, advisable for TV stands. If you have already done some research you will have noticed that the TV stand price will often depend on the material. Synchronize your budget with the best available material for your TV Unit.
Lastly, pick a TV Unit that will turn into a True House Décor.
Use the TV Unit as another décor in the house. By that, we don’t necessarily mean that it has to be rich in colors, ornaments, or complex geometrical shapes. Sometimes, the simpler an object is, the more beauty it holds. For instance, our TV Units have a walnut veneer, bringing an extra touch of beauty to the overall look! Following these simple guidelines, you can shop with confidence, armed with all the information you need to select the perfect TV unit for your home.
